    If you have any issues with salt this is not the restaurant for you The food quality is good but way too salty - ordered the cod thinking it would the least salty and could not eat it - the rest of my party enjoyed their meals

    The food was amazing!! The Eggplant Escabeche Toast is a must. We had the duck & the steak, and both were absolutely delicious. The chocolate cake we had for dessert was incredible. The restaurant is beautiful, and the staff were welcoming, attentive and helpful. The only misses were the Seafood Bungalow which we found to be overpriced and underwhelming, and the selection of beverages available to those who don’t drink alcohol is sparse, with few options available. Otherwise, it was an awesome night out, and we will definitely be back. Thanks for making it great Arlo!

    We really enjoyed our time at Arlo. Great appetizers and wine list. The only letdown was the duck frites main course. The duck was overspiced and underwhelming.

    This was our first visit to Arlo. We had a table for 2 on the back lower patio. Everything about the evening was perfect. LeeAnn our server was knowledgeable about the food/wine offerings, and provided great service. The food was exquisite and paired beautifully with the wine. We look forward to another Arlo evening

    The quality of food and service that we received at Arlo was unparalleled. Management was going to every table to greet and talk with all of the guests, which isn't something you see often, if it all, and that kind of personal touch is why I will be returning to Arlo as often as I can.

    Our servers Ethan (and sometimes Tim) were just wonderful! The service is really exceptional. You could not ask for more! The food was incredible. All 5 of us were beyond happy with every dish we got and there were many. The patio is so beautiful so the ambience was perfect… I would give this place 20 out of 5 if that was a thing!

    High-end food with a house party vibe, Arlo is the antithesis of what you’d expect for “fine dining” — except for the food and wine list, which wouldn’t be out of place in a Michelin reviewer’s wet dream. Can’t wait to go back!

    Great atmosphere, exceptional service and delicious food. What more could you want? The ambient lighting and the choice of back ground music made it a joy to be in. I am a fussy wine person and I wasn't totally crazy about the wine by the glass selection - but they bent over backwards to find one I would drink. Their wine by the bottle selection is insane. Plus, I am celiac - and they had so many options or made substitutions. All in all… I will be going back to this restaurant as soon as I can.

    This was a more energetic and free flowing approach to high quality dining in Ottawa, so we simply put any expectations aside and enjoyed what was available by the glass and on the menu. We loved every relaxed and delicious moment.
